BookPage Reviews

The 1995 Nobel laureate, Seamus Heaney, of Ireland, much better known in the U.S. explores the natural world, a varied cast of characters, and ethical issues in The Spirit Level. In "The Gravel Walks," he asks us to "Hoard and praise the verity of gravel. Gems for the undeluded." And, in "Weighing In," we are urged to "Prophesy, give scandal, cast the stone" in response to the "Passive Suffering that makes the world go round." Thoughtful, elegant, and very down to earth.
